A herione

“There was not one lord in the neighborhood; no — not even a baronet.  There was not one family among their acquaintance who had reared and supported a boy accidentally found at their door — not one young man whose origin was unknown.  Her father had no ward, and the squire of the parish no children.

But when a young lady is to be a heroine, the perverseness of forty surrounding families cannot prevent her.  Something must and will happen to throw a hero in her way.”

Of Catherine Morland, our would-be heroine
Northanger Abbey, volume 1, chapter 1

  1. Hi Lori,
    Ack. I have ack days, too. It’s hard living with chronic illness. I’ll be praying for you. I just heard about your book and am looking forward to reading it, perhaps reviewing it.
    Many blessings,
    2 Corinthians 12:9

    Thanks for the update on your health. I’m so sorry about your health and will continue to pray for the miraculous healing! Don’t give up; God is still bigger and better than your sickness and His power will heal you.

  4. Oh stay strong sweetheart. Good luck on your book.
    Never give up. You’re as strong as you want to be, as strong as you believe you can be.

    May God heal you and give you abundant grace!
    Thanks so much for posting about Cecilia by Fanny Burney a while ago. I just got the book from our library and I love it!

  6. Don’t give up! Never, never, never give up! (Golly, I think I started channeling Churchill!) I’ll be storming heaven for you!
